Muslim Brotherhood 'Crucifies' Opponents, Attacks Secular Media

Muslim Brotherhood 'Crucifies' Opponents, Attacks Secular Media | More Troops die! | Scoop.it

(Raymond Ibrahim) - Last week in Egypt, when Muslim Brotherhood supporters terrorized the secular media, several Arabic websites—including Arab News, Al Khabar News,Dostor Watany, and Egypt Now—reported that people were being "crucified." The relevant excerpt follows in translation:

A Sky News Arabic correspondent in Cairo confirmed that protestors belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood crucified those opposing Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi naked on trees in front of the presidential palace while abusing others. Likewise, Muslim Brotherhood supporters locked the doors of the media production facilities of 6-October [a major media region in Cairo], where they proceeded to attack several popular journalists.

That there were attacks and violence—both in front of Egypt's presidential palace and at major media facilities, is well-documented. An August 9 report by El Balad, a widely read Egyptian website, gives the details:
 

Last Wednesday, August 8, "thousands of the Muslim Brotherhood's supporters" attacked 6-October's media facilities, beat Khaled Salah—chief editor of the privately-owned and secular Youm 7 newspaper—prevented Yusif al-Hassani, an On TV broadcaster, from entering the building, and generally "terrorized the employees."
 

El Balad adds that the supporters of Tawfik Okasha, another vocal critic of President Morsi—the one who widely disseminated the graphic video of a Muslim apostate being slaughtered to cries of "Allahu Akbar"—gathered around the presidential palace, only to be surrounded by Brotherhood supporters, who "attacked them with sticks, knives, and Molotov cocktails, crucifying some of them on trees, leading to the deaths of two and the wounding of dozens."


Far from condemning these terrorists, Al Azhar, Egypt's most authoritative Islamic institution, has just issued a fatwa calling for more violence and oppression, saying that "fighting participants in anti-Muslim Brotherhood demonstrations planned for 24 August is a religious obligation."
 

Most of the aforementioned Arabic sites point out that these attacks are part of the Muslim Brotherhood's campaign to intimidate and thus censor Egypt's secular media from exposing the group's Islamist agenda, which Youm 7, On TV, and Okasha do daily. [Note: the latter's channel was recently shut down, despite Morsi's previous reassurances that "no station or media will be shut down in my era."]
 

These threats are not new; back in April, an organization called the "Jihad Group to Cleanse the Country" threatened these media with "painful and severe punishments." Apparently now that Morsi has become master of Egypt, threats are becoming reality, just as promises are being broken.
 

And the threats are taking their toll. Sky News, which was first to report about the crucifixions, has taken down its original article (though the URL still appears in the address box with the Arabic words "protesters-crucified-in front of-egypt's-presidential-palace").
 

While one may argue that Sky News removed the article because it was found false, one can equally argue that it censored itself for fear that it would be next in the terror campaign against the media.
 

In reality, there is little reason to doubt this crucifixion story. Militant Muslims crucifying their opponents is a regular feature of the Islamic world—recent cases coming from the Ivory Coast, where two Christian brothers were crucified, similarly by supporters of a Muslim president who ousted a Christian; Indonesia, where Islamic separatists crucified a fellow Muslim for being a military informant; and in Iraq, where Muslim militants crucified Christian children.
 

Moreover, those alleged to have been crucified in Egypt certainly fit the Koran's description of who deserves to be crucified. According to Allah, "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this: that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off…" (Koran 5:33).
 

"Making mischief in the land" is precisely what the secular media is being accused of, by constantly exposing the Muslim Brotherhood and its Islamist agenda. Even the Jihad Group to Cleanse the Country, which threatens to "liquidate" many secular media, accuses them of "creating chaos to implement the American and Zionist agenda."
 

Finally, it is telling that only a few months ago, and for the first time in Egypt's modern history, an Egyptian MP proposed to institutionalize Sharia's most draconian punishments—including crucifixion.
 

In short, under the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the bottle has been uncorked and the Islamic Genie set loose. Expect much worse to come.

Afghanistan blast kills 6 U.S. troops

Afghanistan blast kills 6 U.S. troops | More Troops die! | Scoop.it

We have spent enough American blood and treasure in Afghanistan. It's time for the troops to leave the God forsaken country of Afghanistan. They need to be far away from the Muslims who despise and murder them. 

Beside the problem of Afghanistan not being ready for democracy from a fundamental ideological perspective, the Arab Spring has radically altered the Jihad game globally, the crazies in Iran are getting froggy, and we have our own Jihad problems in America. 

 

All signs indicate a desperate need on the part of America to reassess the entire situation from a global perspective and develop a comprehensive counter-jihad strategy (not based on alliances with Islamists and happy thoughts of rainbows and sunshine). In the meantime, BRING THE TROOPS HOME.
 

(LA Times) — In what was an extraordinarily violent day even by Afghan standards, separate incidents on Sunday killed seven Western troops, including six Americans who died in a single blast, along with five Afghan police officers and at least 18 civilians, Western and Afghan officials said.

 

The six Americans died in an explosion in eastern Afghanistan, where fighting has been on the increase. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization force confirmed the deaths late Sunday without disclosing the nationality of those killed, but a U.S. official said they were Americans.
 

In recent months, the pace of military deaths caused by homemade bombs, had slowed, mainly because of better equipment and improved detection methods.

Two other Western troops were killed over the weekend in southern Afghanistan, the military announced: one in an insurgent attack Sunday, making it one of the year's deadliest days for NATO forces; and another in a bombing Saturday.
 

The 18 civilians died in three separate explosions in a small district: Arghistan, in Kandahar province, close to the Pakistani border. In a cruel cascade of events, the first bomb tore through a minivan packed with early morning travelers on a rural road, and the second struck villagers who rushed to the rescue. The third hit yet another civilian vehicle a short distance away and a short time later.
 

At least five of the dead were women, according to provincial spokesman Ahmad Javed Faisal. Underscoring insurgents' determination to stage a comeback in Kandahar province, their traditional heartland, a band of insurgents stormed a police checkpoint in the district of Musa Qala in Helmand province just after dawn Sunday, the governor's office said.

 

Casualties in the initial fighting were lopsided — 22 insurgents killed and three policemen wounded, according to provincial authorities. But an additional five policemen were killed by a roadside bomb after the police at the checkpoint called for reinforcements, according to Daoud Ahmadi, a spokesman for the governor.
 

Roadside bombs kill hundreds of Afghan civilians every year and maim thousands more. They are almost always planted by insurgents who intend them for coalition troops. Military patrols and civilian vehicles use the same roads, but it is most often noncombatants — who tend to travel in crowded, rattletrap vehicles — who bear the brunt of the blasts. More than 3,000 Afghan civilians were killed last year in violence attributed to the conflict.
 

The pace of noncombatant fatalities dropped off sharply in the early months of this year as Afghanistan experienced its harshest winter in many years, but civilian deaths have soared in recent weeks after temperatures warmed and the summer "fighting season" heated up.
